Dentures

Missing teeth can make your cheeks look hollow and your mouth look sunken. More importantly, your diet can suffer. Individuals missing multiple teeth in a row may want to consider dentures for both cosmetic purposes and overall wellness. Depending on the amount of teeth missing, we may suggest partial or full dentures. During your consultation, we’ll assess all your options and you can choose what you feel most comfortable with.

Partial

Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing only a few teeth in a row. They rest on the gingiva where teeth are missing and small clasps attach onto adjacent teeth to increase the retentive properties of the appliance. Even if you only have one tooth on your dental arch, a partial denture may still work best, since the remaining tooth serves as a natural anchor.

Complete

When your dental arch no longer has any teeth, a complete denture is the optimal solution. You can choose the traditional denture which rests on the gums where teeth are missing and relies on suction to keep it in place or choose to have dentures that are anchored by dental implants. The latter option has the best hold, but involves surgery. Our dentists can discuss all the details so you can make an informed decision.
